Default 1958 Slingerland Silver Veil

Was $625 a good deal for these:

Pretty decent shape.


The floor tom used to be a marching snare from the same year. I'm in the process of drilling and putting legs on it.
Came with original calfskin bass head, but broke during shipment. Should I trash it, or is it worth something?
Also, when the re-rings are seperating from the shell, what do you guys usually do to secure them? It's not very bad, I'm just worried.

Half of what you paid was for the rarity of the wrap. I hope that the short rail mount is complete on bass drum and the mounted tom. With some love and restoration, those three drums will be worth a little bit more than what you paid for them and the rehab parts. If you luck into a matching 5"x 14" or 6.5" x 14" snare drum, you will have a $1200 drum set after spiffing them up.
No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.

Glue and clamps, plus a little knowledge, will make a world of difference in the delam. And Kevin right, get them out of the humidity.
